The Ayurveda of Bathing

People have different ways to battle their blues; some listen to music, some go out riding, others find comfort in food and a very rare portion of the human populace find solace in taking a bath. There are many who say that a nice bath early in the morning can leave you feeling like a million dollars the whole day. Even in Ayurveda, bathing is considered as a therapeutic activity. This combined with the luxurious all body massage was considered something truly divine in the sacred texts. Ancient Indus Valley Civilization as well as in the Greek civilizations bathing has always been accorded a status of the intimate and sacred activity. In both the above-mentioned civilizations archaeologists have unearthed pool like structures that are believed to have been a form of a public bath and also private baths were also uncovered with an elaborate drainage system in certain households. Even today we have our own version of royal baths which feature rose petals, milk honey and turmeric that is created from an amazing range of bath accessories that are available to us in any local store. This could make even the simplest washroom a beautiful boutique.

Most of the Ayurvedic treatments in Kerala revolve around educating the short and long term effects of these fundamental issues. The Ayurvedic resorts in Kerala, the Ayurveda training courses in Kerala have also adopted the same. The Yoga Center in Kannur has even adopted the Panchakarma Therapy in Kerala.
